Workshops

March, 4th 2012.

1. DELIVERY, SURGICAL COMPLETION OF DELIVERY AND CESAREAN SECTION
 
Time: July 19th 2013, 11:00 AM
Supervisors: Prof. dr Tihomir Vejnović, Prof dr Mirjana Bogavac, doc. dr Ljiljana Mladenovic Segedi
Student demonstrators: Zoran Novaković, Aleksandra Vejnovic
Place: Clinical Center of Vojvodina, Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics
 
          This workshop is designed in an interactive form where you can learn about the mechanism of normal delivery and possible complications of delivery with review of cesarean section delivery modified by Vejnovic. As we know cesarean delivery is the most common obstetric surgery today. Improvement of operative techniques, anesthesia, care and transfusion has contributed to safety of the procedure and expansion of indications. In the opening lecture you can learn about one of new operative techniques - Cesarean section delivery modified by Vejnovic. The main characteristic of modification Vejnović is shortening uterus suture so the subsequent scar is smaller.
          This lecture will be supported with live video operation of cesarean section delivery. After the lecture there will be discussion in which all participants can participate. In practical part of workshop all participants will actively participate in normal vaginal delivery on obstetricial and childbirth simulator models.
 
      
 
 
2. THE AIRWAY AND INTRAVENOUS ACCESS WORKSHOP
 
Time: July 20th 2013, 11:00 AM
Supervisors: ass. dr Ana Uram-Benka, dr Izabella Fabri
Place: Faculty of Medicine, Amphitheatre 1
 
          Medical doctors should be familiar with the adequate establishment of a patient’s airway. The airway can be secured in several ways, which mainly depend on the degree of respiratory failure of the patient and on the skills and technical possibilities of the performer. The first approach to a person, who is not breathing properly, would consist of several maneuvers aimed at opening of the airway. They consist of an effective chin lift, jaw thrust and head toss of the afflicted. If the measures listed above provide with no result, the patient should be manually or mechanically ventilated and airway should be maintained with a face mask, a supraglottic device or an endotracheal tube. The ability to obtain intravenous (IV) access is an essential skill in medicine. The procedure can appear deceptively simple when performed by an expert, it is in fact a difficult skill which requires considerable practice to perfect. Generally IV’s are started at the most peripheral site that is available and appropriate for the situation. IV access is essential to manage problems in all critically ill patients. All critically ill patients require IV access in anticipation of future potential problems, when fluid and/or medication resuscitation may be necessary. 
          The workshop is designed to provide the participants all the necessary skills which are required in airway establishment and intravenous access. Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to adequately ventilate patients on medical simulator mannequins, to insert several different types of laryngeal masks and endotracheal tubes. Participants also will have the opportunity to practice placement of peripheral intravenous lines. Each practical skill performance will be followed by numerous information from theory related to the given discipline.
 
     
 
 
3. EMERGENCY MEDICINE: “STAYIN’ ALIVE”
 
Time: July 19th 2013, 11:00 AM
Supervisor: Milos Vujanovic, MD
Place: Faculty of Medicine, Amphitheatre 2
 
            The Bee Gees’ famous song is used for the title of this workshop not only because of its symbolic meaning. A small study by researchers from University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria established that the Bee Gees disco song “Stayin’ Alive” might also help people stay alive upon receiving the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), if their rescuer knows the 1977 tune. They found that “Stayin’ Alive” has a beat of 103bpm, that’s in sync with the recommended pace of 100bpm for the chest compressions given during CPR. Very interesting, isn’t it? 
          This workshop will be a course (adjusted to all congress participants) during which you will get basic knowledge and skills in the pre-hospital management of some life-threatening conditions such as a cardiac arrest and severe external bleeding. The workshop consist of three parts: The first part is theoretical. We will talk about the basic methods of revival (BLS-Basic Life Support) using the Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and about methods used to stop external haemorrhage. 
           The second part is a practical session during which you will be able to practice and improve your skills. An Ancient Chinese Proverb & An Educational Aphorism says: “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” The third part is made up of a realistic example of an accident, in which case you will be the life rescuer. You will use your skills and knowledge on the mannequins and live simulators. During these exercises you will initiate the best possible rescuing procedure for the injured before the ambulance arrives.

6. PATIENT - FRIENDLY HEALTH CARE APPROACH
 
Time: July 20th 2013, 11:00 AM
Supervisor: dr Lidia Turo, Department of Students' Health Care
Place: Faculty of Medicine, Pharmacy Amphitheatre
 

Patient- centered, patient- friendly health care leads to higher level of active patient engagement at every level of care design and implementation which insures high-quality health care. Crucial to good patient care is good communication with patients, family members, caregivers, consultants and referring physicians. Excellence in listening and talking with patients,  families, nurses, therapists and other health care workers  should be very high on the list of goals that we want to accomplish in providing good patient care. Patient-centered care supports active involvement of patients and their families in the design of new care models and in decision-making about individual options regarding behavioral change, treatment etc. Engaged patients seem to have better perceived health outcomes. Patient friendly care is respectful of and responsive to individual preferences, needs, and values ensuring that patient values guide all medical decisions. The art of patient care also involes  giving information (educating patients) and encouragement, and patient incentive. This workshop will provide students with skills to create excellent physician-patient relationship with emphasis on "whole-person" care approach, communication, patient support and empowerment.

8. MINIMALLY INVASIVE APPROACH TO BILIARY CALCULOSIS
 
Time: July 20th 2013, 11:00 AM
Supervisor: Aleksandar Gluhović, MD
Place: Clinical Center of Vojvodina, Emergency center in Novi Sad
 
The conventional way of solving problems related to gallbladder calculosis and biliary tract includes surgical removal of the gallbladder by classical laparotomy, with the opening of the common bile duct, extraction of calculus with closure of duct over the outer T tube drainage. This type of surgery involves hospitalization in length of at least a week with significant morbidity rate and prolonged postoperative recovery period of one month. Minimally invasive laparoscopic approach involves a combination of cholecystectomy with intraoperative cholangiography in combination with preoperative or postoperative endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with endoscopic papillotomy (EPT) and drain of bile duct into the duodenum. The advantages of this type of surgery are: significantly shortened duration of hospitalization (three days), the avoidance of all potential complications of surgical approach with open bile ducts and a reduction in postoperative recovery in a few days. The workshop is designed in interactive form where participants will follow presentation of performing the procedure, after which they will have the opportunity to watch live broadcast of laparoscopic gallbladder surgery with intraoperative cholangiography from the operating room.

Place: Faculty of Medicine, Pharmacy Amphitheatre

Theoretical lecture
NSAIDs are among the most frequently used medications worldwide. There is, however, overwhelming evidence linking these agents to toxicities affecting the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems as well as the liver. During this lecture the students will be introduced about the different side-effect profiles of currently available NSAIDs on the market. In addition, consumption of NSAIDs during a 5-year period in Serbia as well as the most commonly used NSAIDs in our country will be presented. Based on all this, the students will have deeper insight into prescribing and consumption habits of NSAIDs in Serbia. Also, our data is going to be compared with the consumption of NSAIDs in other European countries. 

 

Workshop
Based on the knowledge gain at the theoretical part of the lecture, the student will be encouraged to solve the following therapeutical problems: 
1. Patient with osteoarthritis – choose the most adequate NSAIDs for the beginning of the treatment of the pain 
2. Patient with osteoarthritis and with increased cardiovascular risk - choose the most adequate NSAIDs for the treatment of the pain 
3. Patient with osteoarthritis and with increased gastrointestinal risk - choose the most adequate NSAIDs for the treatment of the pain 
4. Patient with osteoarthritis and with hepatic impairment - choose the most adequate NSAIDs for the treatment of the pain
